HC Deb 05 December 1985 vol 88 cc286-7W
Mr. John Mark Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if, pursuant to the answer of 28 November, Official Report, column 626, he has at any time requested the West Midlands county council to keep his Department informed of any business which might have been generated by that council's mission to Hong Kong in autumn 1984; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Howard

No. As the mission was not officially sponsored, no such request was made.
